Jui Tui and Pud Jow Chinese Shrine



This is the Chinese Shrine which is located next to the more commonly know Jui Tui Shrine.  The Chinese Shrines are next to each other and there are several different roooms so I do not know where the demarkation line (if any exists).


This is not the only time that we have visited Jui Tui Shrine
June 2011 
we have also visited for the Vegetarian Festival and the Baba Wedding Festival and 
the 9 Chinese Shrines tour.

Xtrem Adventure Park





Does what it says!!


Xtrem Adventure Park Phuket, Chalong.


It was certainly an adventure.  It is a park with climbing, zip lines, tall trees, nets, helmets and pure adrenaline for anybody who choses to visit.






There was a great kids park as well.
We would visit here again

Wat Muang Mai Buddhist Temple



We visited here on our way to Splash Jungle, which is always FUN and I just hope that it is never busy, very selfish I know BUT no queueing for a ride!!


There is a very quiet Wat which we visited because I knew so little about it.
I don't know much more because there was nobody there.

OTOP market



There is an OTOP market in Patong.

OTOP was created by a Thai Government and translates to "One Tambon One Project" and it was to help give areas of Thailand a product which was 'their own'.


I do not know of any products here that are from this scheme but if you got to the 'Hello Kitty Shop' they have a great selction of DVDs!
made in Phuket?

Patong Beach



Patong is not normally talked about in reference to a beach... despite this Patong beach is a lobg beach with a lot of activities to do here are some - banana boat, hair braiding, water ski, massage, parachutes and a lot more...


In the evening Patong is very different....


More talk is to do with Bangla Road (lady boys), shopping, ladies, bars and more ladies.



This is the road where there is a lot of 'action' and embarrassing - is she a he questions shared...


Here is a guide to help...
BUT mistakes are made, especially after Singhas
